The world is slowing down dramatically. At the same time, the largest economy is hurtling towards an election. Al governments who go to election will try to massage the numbers and pump the stock markets. So while the economy slows, the governmment is buzy pumping markets higher with his tweets.
The slowing down economy can be seen in numerous metrics and we believe central banks will be forced to begin a new round of QE. This time they will need to face up to inflation even as they pump in money.
Key metrics and charts shown below.

Fundamentally, we do see a major slowdown in US, UK and EU. We have not looked at Asia but generally Asian economies feed upon the western counterparts. Central banks will have to restart their QE programs and this time its effect will be much lower.
Dollar Index is at resistance and it could dip lower.
DXY is trading a tad below recent tops in the boundaries of 96.90, challenging the critical support at the 200-day SM in the 96.60 region. This significant area of contention is also reinforced by the multi-month resistance line, today at 96.73. Immediately above emerges the 100-day SMA at 97.08 ahead of the 55-day SMA at 97.31, considered interim hurdles and the last defence of a test of June tops near 97.80.
Bitcoin on normal candlestick daily shows a price action which looks tired and unwilling to push higher. But on the renko charts free of much of the noise, the uptrend is solid and pushing teh outer boundary of the bollinger bands. Only under 10000 can bitcoin be considered for shorting.
The USD/CAD pair dropped to fresh nine-month lows on Thursday, albeit now seemed to have found some support ahead of mid-1.3000s.
The mentioned support nears Nov. 2018 swing lows and should now act as a key pivotal point for the next leg of a directional move. Given the recent bearish break below important confluence support – comprising of the very important 200-day SMA and 5-1/2-month-old ascending trend-line, bearish traders are likely to maintain their dominant position. However, technical indicators on the daily chart have moved on the verge of falling into the oversold territory, which might eventually turn out to be the only factor holding investors from placing any aggressive bearish bets. Sustained weakness below the mentioned support will confirm a fresh near-term bearish breakdown, though traders are likely to wait for Friday’s important releases of monthly jobs report from Canada and NFP from the US. A follow-through selling now seems to turn the pair vulnerable to accelerate the slide further towards challenging the key 1.30 psychological mark before the bearish momentum gets extended further towards the 1.2970-65 region. On the flip side, attempted recoveries might now confront immediate resistance near the 1.3100 round figure mark and any subsequent up-move seems more likely to remain capped near weekly tops, around the 1.3140-45 supply zone.
The prevalent USD selling bias helped build on the recent up-move.
Bulls seemed rather unaffected by softer Aussie retail sales figures.
Fading US-China trade optimism capped gains amid thin trading.
The AUD/USD pair failed to capitalize on its early uptick to near two-month tops and has now retreated to the lower end of its daily trading range, around the 0.7030 region. The pair continued gaining positive traction for the third consecutive session on Thursday and built on the post-RBA bounce from 50-day SMA amid the prevalent US Dollar selling bias. The ongoing slide in the US Treasury bond yields to their lowest level in more than 2-1/2 year lows kept the USD bulls on the defensive and remained supportive of the recent up-move. The buck was further pressurized by Wednesday's disappointing US macro data, showing that the US private-sector employers added less-than-expected 102K jobs in June while the ISM non-manufacturing PMI fell to 55.1 as compared to 55.9 expected and 56.9 previous, which reinforced market expectations that the Fed will eventually cut interest rates in July.
GBP/USD pair continues to hold below the 1.2763/72 resistance (the 7th June high and February low) and they maintain a slightly negative bias. The Elliott wave count on the daily chart is negative implying that the market is likely to slide back towards the 1.2559/1.2506 recent lows. Below 1.2506 would target the 1.2444 December 2018 low. This is the last defence for 1.2108, the 78.6% retracement of the move up from 2016. The market will have to overcome last weeks high at 1.2784 on a closing basis in order to generate some further upside interest. This will target the 200 day ma at 1.2913, but we are looking for this to then cap the topside.
